It’s time for the Seashore Stampers to get blog-hopping again! Today’s theme is 3D Christmas projects, and I’m sharing a very cute and simple box I created to hold a pocket-pack of tissues. I don’t know about you, but at this time of year I like to have these little pocket-packs at hand wherever I am! And now with this cute packaging, they make a handy gift or stocking-stuffer.

I based this design on one I saw online by Jo Anne Hewins, using a box template by Angie Juda. However, I altered the box design to make it a landscape layout instead of portrait. Once I wrapped my head around that, I was able to alter the measurements to suit a smaller tissue pack as well. Here’s a pic of the two boxes together.

I’ve been making LOADS of 3D items for my Christmas craft fairs, the first of which is TODAY! If you’re in the Nanaimo area, I hope you’ll come visit me at the Christmas Village, taking place at the German Cultural Center (71 Caledonia Avenue) from 10am to 4pm today.

Next weekend, I’ll be at the Quarterway School Craft Fair, taking place at 1632 Bowen Road, 10am to 3pm on Saturday, November 30th.

Please come and say hello, and maybe pick out some gift items for the upcoming holiday season while you’re at it! I have lots of treat holders, stationery items, gift card holders, decor items, and of course …. lots and lots of greeting cards for all occasions! You can also enter my free draw and maybe win a prize!

I hope you enjoyed my project! You can check out the shopping list below to see what products I used to create it. Then be sure to click on the buttons to continue on the blog hop, and enjoy all the other wonderful Christmas creations!

Happy Stampin’!

Have you seen the beautiful project kit in the holiday catalogue, “Christmas Countdown“? This kit includes enough supplies to create 25 mini boxes, plus a sturdy outer box to hold them all. Fill the boxes with small gifts, and let the countdown begin!

While you can complete the project using the Christmas Countdown stamp set, creative demonstrators and crafters have come up with many other ways to use the kit. Here are some beautiful alternative projects using holiday-themed papers and products.

You can also use the kit to count down to a different event, such as Thanksgiving, Halloween, or a special birthday. Check out these alternatives!

One clever demonstrator decided to decorate the boxes with punch art to count down to a family trip to Disney World!

Or, you can simply decorate it with some of your favourite papers and let it be a year-round decor/organization item.

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The sliding boxes/drawers have a front and back, so you can get two countdowns in one kit – use it to count down to Halloween, then flip the drawers around and use the countdown to Christmas side.

The possibilities are endless! Contact me today to order yours, or shop 24/7 at my online store. Be sure to show me a photo of your completed kit in the comments. I’d love to see what you use it for!

Happy Stampin’!
